Does This Smoker Make My Butts Look Big?

July went out with a bang! We couldn’t have done it without our amazing Wine Clubmembers, so thank you to everyone who joined us for the Club Appreciation Party on July 31st.

Here are a few of the highlights:


There was no shortage of food as Winemaker Keith Pilgrim got in touch with his Southern side. Smoked pork butt was on the menu along with homemade sauces for anyone adventurous enough to try them. The Carolina Sweet was a favorite of the night, with the Hot & Spicy running a close second.


Speaking of food, take a look at this spread.

Rumor has it that the watermelon was very good with the Hot & Spicy sauce drizzled over it.


Now the question everyone is wondering: was there wine?


Of course there was wine! Since pork was the main dish, Syrah was the obvious choice. Poured throughout the evening were eight different vintages of Syrah, both Arch Terrace and Block 8. The 2011 Arch Terrace Malbec gave guests a spicier option, and the 2014 Arch Terrace Rose was refreshing for the warm evening.


The Tasting Room was packed with new and “vintage” club members alike!












The party wasn’t limited to club members either. Even Owner ReNae Pilgrim found time to relax with a glass of Rose.


Full bellies deterred very few from dessert, hand-scooped by Twigs Chef AJ.











Glasses of wine in hand, many retired to the terrace to take in the views. The sunset didn’t disappoint and was a beautiful punctuation to a night filled with laughter, good food, great wine, and the best people we could hope to share it all with.





Thank you, Club ONYX members, from all of us here at Terra Blanca. As Keith has said, you are the heart of Terra Blanca.
